I'm sorry I was just browsing through as I usually do and noticed LOAF say something about a Wing Commander Academy "Show" now that sort of bewilders me....I never heard of a Wing Commander show nor Wing Commander Academy!

It came on the USA network a years back. 1996, I think. I only saw one episode. It had the voices of Hamill, Wilson, and McDowell, and followed the adventures of Blair and Maniac when they attended the Academy.

I could not tell you if it was any good. I haven't seen it in four years! But, I've been looking. Hopefully, one of these days I'll be able to see it again.

It was excellent. Much more true to the plot of the game than the movie was. You can view then from right here at the CIC, in the section entitled WCATV.

The WC Academy cartoon was good fun. Basically it's the games all over again except Blair & Maniac are cadets (like most of us
) & Tolwyn's a commodore. He also han't started to go crazy. Keep your eyes peeled for WC3 fighters mixing it up with WC1 & WC2 craft.

You can download them here at the CIC, I've seen all but two episodes and they are prety good. My favorite episodes are the second where the four pilots are caught in a solar flare and try to destroy the Claw because they think Tolwyn and the others are working with Kilrathi, and the one with the stealth fighters.

I thought it was a cool show. Although the download takes a while I think it's worth the wait.

I saw about 3 mins of the show back in '97.....then my parents yelled at me to turn off the tv and put my shoes on cause we were going to church


All I remember was Maniac piloting a fighter (I forget the fighter, if you twisted my arm, i'd guess it was a Hellcat....)

The show is sort of a meld of WC1-3 that is simplified down to a show that a child can find entertaining (not that WC isn't entertaining for children... :) It is fairly good but at some points the show becomes over simplified, but that always happens. Overall it is good.

ugh....


The Series is a lot more 'in-depth' than the Movie was (considering the movie was more crash-bang/knowing the characters).
It's too difficult to bunch all that information in the movie when they did.
I believe the series were hilarious!!
